Sunday Book Share #23
I'm participating in Feed My Reader Friday hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. The memes allow book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received and different posts and events at their blog.
Hello from the depths of Blizzard Nemo! I'm typing this up Friday night, in case I lose power. So far, the snow accumulation in my region isn't too bad but the winds have been strong and the weather reports on the tv show downed power lines and regions with heavy accumulations. Many schools, including mine, announced on Thursday that we'd be closed on Friday. It was good knowing in advance and being able to plan accordingly. One benefit to being home on Friday? I gobbled up a new book coming out next month, "Frost Burned" by Patricia Briggs. Happy sigh.
ETA: As of Sunday noon time, my town had about 2 feet of snow and we didn't lose power, though other towns did.
The Week In Review
Interview: Quick Interview with Piper Maitland
Memes: Sunday Book Share #22
I had a most awesome week for books. It was amazing but my TBR pile is, well, scary. As I'm writing this post, I'm reading 2 books for review and I still have 835 books to be read. That figure includes digital and print, personal and review, and some that I don't own but have gotten/will get from the library. It's a good thing I'm participating in Kimba's Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge next month. There's still time to sign up if your TBR pile is also out of control.

Review - Kindle
I have an excerpt from this scheduled for this Saturday and the review is scheduled for April.
Review - Print
I squeed so hard when this arrived. I love this series, it's an all-time favorite. I hadn't requested the book since I was planning on buying it anyway and I'm backed up on reviews. But, the publisher sent it, and I gobbled it right up. I'm not sure when the review will go up but sometime in the next few weeks, possibly this week if I can manage it.
I got an email from the publicist for this and though I shouldn't have, I said yes. Somebody hide the computer so I can't request or agree to any more books or download any. :D There will also be a giveaway along with the review, some time this month.
The rest of these were sent unsolicited; some will likely end up being reviewed.
Astraea Press Freebies - Kindle
Remember, my publisher is giving away 2 different books every day this month. Go to their blog each day and get the coupon codes to download that day's free books, available in all major digital formats.
I worked on both The Corruption of Mila (content edits) and A Forbidden Union (proofing).
Hey, I said I had an amazing book week! :D I have lots of reading material to keep me busy during the blizzard, though I have to work on some editing too.
I hope you all had a good week. Remember to leave a link to your post in your comment and I'll stop in during the week.
